Sacred Heart Church, Muenster, Texas
The church
   
On New Year's Day 1890, plans were made for a school and church - with the school being built first and serving both purposes. The church was begun the following year but a winter storm destroyed the building before it could be used. The replacement was a Gothic frame church completed by the spring of 1892, but this too was destroyed (in the Summer of 1893) by a tornado. The third church structure began in 1897 and lasted until the early 1950s when it was replaced by the current church building.
